DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lisa was
located near latitude 15.4 North, longitude 77.6 West. Lisa is
moving toward the west near 14 mph, and a westward to west-
northwestward motion is expected over the next few days.  On the
forecast track, the center will pass south of Jamaica today, south
of the Cayman Islands tomorrow, and approach Central America on
Wednesday.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate 
that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph (75 
km/h) with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the 
next few days, and Lisa could become a hurricane over the 
northwestern Caribbean Sea.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches)


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible on Jamaica today.

RAINFALL: Through Thursday evening, Lisa is expected to produce
rainfall amounts of 1 inch, with local amounts to 2 inches across
portions of the Cayman Islands, northern Honduras, and eastern
Nicaragua. For Jamaica and Guatemala, rainfall amounts of 2 to 4
inches are expected, with localized totals of 6 inches. For
Belize, rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are expected with
localized totals as high as 8 inches. This rainfall could lead to
flash flooding.

SURF:  Swells generated by Lisa are expected to affect Jamaica and
the Cayman Islands during the next couple of days, and begin to
affect Central America tomorrow. These swells could cause life-
threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
